Publication/Patent Number: US10885098B2 Publication Date: 2021-01-05 Application Number: 14/854,689 Filing Date: 2015-09-15 Inventor: Drake, Barry James   Downing, Andrew Peter   Assignee: Canon Kabushiki Kaisha   IPC: G06F16/51 Abstract: A method of generating hash codes from a query vector. An ordering of dimensions is determined for a lattice hole in an A* lattice, the lattice hole being located nearest to the query vector and the ordering of dimensions represents a mapping applied to transform a canonical hole of the A* lattice to the lattice hole. An initial hash code is determined for a first point in the A* lattice, based on the query vector, using a plurality of predetermined constants. A subsequent hash code is generated for a second point in the A* lattice, from the initial hash code by modifying the initial hash code by a multiple of a constant. The constant is selected from the plurality of predetermined constants using the determined ordering of dimensions.

A multi-eye image capture section has image capture sections that capture images in different image capture ranges partially overlapping with each other to generate a wide-angle image. A single-eye image capture section captures an image in part of the image capture ranges of the multi-eye image capture section and changes an image capture direction. When performing image capture using illumination, the exposure level of a first image capture section of the multi-eye image capture section, having an image capture range overlapping with the image capture range of the single-eye image capture section is controlled to be lower than the exposure level of a second image capture section having an image capture range not overlapping with the image capture range of the single-eye image capture section.
